You refer that there is no experience without free will and I canÃ‚Â´t agree with you.
I wonder, on the one hand, if any victim of rape would agree with you and, on the other hand, if somebody is misleaded to drink something with LSD, if they are not having an experience.
Skipping the drugs related question I am going to try to answer. Are you sure Tom said that? I know he said: "There can't be evolution without free will".
Experience has 2 interdependent components:
1. Sensory perception (input data (in MBT model the input data is a virtual reality)).
2. Interpretation of that perception by our consciousness (us). Our past experiences and the quality of our consciousness affect our interpretation.
In your examples 1. was not in control by that person (consciousness). As players in a multiplayer Virtual Reality there are times that we don't have too much control of the input. The extreme case would be that somebody kills us and "Game Over". I pressume and somebody can correct me if I am wrong that the free will applies to what you can do in managing you as a player in a VR. There is a concept called "decision space". Your free will and every consciousness free will acts on that decision space. The decision space changes in time as the VR changes dynamically.
In your examples the limitation was mainly in the "decision space", not the free will.
Imagine you are driving a car in a big wide road with no traffic and no lanes and no speed limits. That is a big decision space. You can make any turns you want, u-turns, go fast, slow, stop. A small decision space would be a very narrow straight road as wide as the car you are driving, with a maximum speed of 40mph and a minimum of 40 mph with cops all over the place. So, you can only go straight at 40mph. There's not too much of free will you can apply in that situation.
Hope I helped on something. I am just seeing Ted answer but I guess mine will add another angle.
